these negotiations. >> i've had conversations with people in new york and working on trade floors. what i've been told by them is there is a huge number of meetings going on around closed doors avoiding all cameras. there has to be a solution. both parties would be blamed if they didn't have a solution. so we know there's going to away solution. it's just what solution is it going to be? >> is it fair to say a grand bargain is off the table? >> or maybe a solution for a few months just to keep it going pap complete collapse is not acceptable. it's not an option. but maybe prolonging this for another three or four months and maybe having longer discussions about it may be the only solution they can come to. >> we're talking about how taxes could potentially go up for 98% of americans. is it going to be an issue of if and when that happens, if they don't reach even a short-term solution, that you really feel it at that point? >> because we have seen alg bit of a recovery in the u.s., up until this point. and people have been feeling more positive. but if you look at the retail numbers and you look
for us in zurich. how will this pan out, carolyn? >> well, this is all based on reports in the "new york times" that came out overnight, ross. and the most interesting piece of information in that report at least i think is the fact that the fine for ubs in connection with the libor investigation could be higher than that that was given to barclays in the summer. remember, barclays paid $450 million to settle that libor probe. and at the time that was a record fine. so now the new york teams is talking about a fine that could be even higher than that. ubs in zurich told me they have no further comment beyond the fact that they have been fully cooperating with regulatory and enforcement authorities in this libor investigation. so we didn't get any confirmation from ubs whatsoever. but the "new york times" does report that u.s. officials are hoping to complete the settlement with ubs maybe mid-december, but of course there could always be delays.is scant, but ubs is probably looking at a very hefty fine and shares in zurich this morning are underperforming the broader market, flat versus t
